Serving size = 1 burrito 
Number of servings = 8

Prep time = 15 minutes 
Cook time = 30 minutes
 

Ingredients:

Nonstick cooking spray
1 large onion, diced
1 large green pepper, diced
1 lb. lean ground turkey
½ tbsp. cumin
½ tbsp. coriander
1 tsp. minced garlic
½ tbsp. smoked paprika
10 oz. can low-sodium petite diced tomatoes, drained
10 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
(Optional) 2 oz. green chiles, in whatever heat intensity you like
8 taco-sized high-fiber, low-carb tortillas (such as Mission Low-Carb Wheat Tortillas)
½ c. 2% shredded cheddar cheese

Topping (all optional):
Salsa
Unflavored Greek yogurt, for topping
Sliced jalapenos
Diced avocados

Directions:

- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

- Set a large skillet over medium flame and allow it to get hot before spraying with non-stick cooking spray.

- Sauté onion, green pepper and garlic 1-2 minutes, until softened. Add ground turkey, breaking up meat and mixing in vegetables, until browned.

- Add spices, tomatoes, black beans, and chiles and drop the heat down to low. Simmer for about 10 minutes.

- Working on a flat surface, lay out tortilla. Place a heaping ½ cup of the meat/veggie mixture in the center of the tortilla. Roll the tortilla by folding the top and bottom over the meat mixture, then rolling into a burrito shape.

- Place each burrito side-by-side in a 13 x 9 inch casserole dish. Spray the top of the burritos with nonstick cooking spray before covering with aluminum foil. Bake 25 minutes.

- Add shredded cheese then bake an additional 5 minutes or until cheese is melted as desired.

- Top with Greek yogurt, salsa, or any other toppings you like!
